Librivox recording of The Art of War by Sun Tzu, translated by Lionel Giles.
Read by Moira Fogarty.
"The Art of War is a Chinese military treatise written during the 6th century BC by Sun Tzu. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it has long been praised as the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time. The Art of War is one of the oldest and most famous studies of strategy and has had a huge influence on both military planning and beyond. The Art of War has also been applied, with much success, to business and managerial strategies." (summary from Wikipedia)

Moira Fogarty has done an excellent job in presenting this work. The sound quality itself is of the highest quality, however her enunciation and the timber of her voice, including her vocal range, makes this a pleasure to hear.
As Sun Tzu's Art of War can be a great temptation to make masculine, and authoritative Ms. Fogarty's straight forward and clear reading allows these ancient thoughts to enter the center of the consciousness.
If you're familiar with this work, her presentation is worth revisiting it for the pure enjoyment of the experience. My compliments to Ms. Fogarty.

I really enjoyed listening to this.
As for the quality of the book itself, it was worth listening to.
Hramirez - if you go to the catalog page link in the description of any of our projects, there will be a link to the online text used for the recording. This particular project was recorded from this text: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/17405
Hi, I would like to have the history in PDF file or other format, I want to follow the sound with the text, there are many words that I can't understand yet. Who help me?

I have been searching for this book in printed format for quite some time here in Pakistan, but unfortunately it is not available.
However, I was delighted to find this in Audio Book format.

Excellent Narration and High Quality Recording!!!
Thank you, Moira Fogarty, for narrating this for us. You are certainly in the top echelon of readers on Librivox in my opinion. I'm now going to visit some of the other novels you've read. Keep up the great work. The quality of the recording was outstanding as well.

Ancient Chinese Strategy Still Good Advice
What could be hotter than a chick reading about war stratagems? Some popping into the mic, but good pacing and powerful content.
